George Clooney & his TangoStar power is very, well, powerful. George Clooney bought the first Tango electric car after starring in Syriana. Commuter Cars, makers of the Tango, admit that this has a lot to do with why they’ve received 100 orders of the car to date. Three of those orders are going to Google’s co-founder Sergey Brin, who is also funding development of a lithium-ion battery pack for the cars.

The national exposure from Clooney, says the owner of Commuter Cars, was “very beneficial.” Also from the article:

Commuter Cars says it would need around $50 million to finish engineering work, obtain crucial Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard certification, and do the necessary tooling and preparation to begin mass-producing the car. That, it says, would enable it to lower the price of its base model to under $20,000.

Until it finds investors willing to put up that kind of money, though, it says it will continue building the cars by hand.
